Intimacy For The Stage – Facilitators
Thursday, February 15 from 10:00AM – 5:00PM in the Westbury Theatre

Learn the techniques and the language to stage human sexuality in a way that is professional, dynamic and focused on storytelling. Clarify the artistic and practical approach to this work. Focus is on subtle and specific details in choreography, and on facilitating a workspace that allows for physical and emotional chemistry between characters – without compromising personal boundaries – resulting in powerful chemistry between characters and clear, effective storytelling. Discussion topics include: creating instant chemistry, The Pillars, permission vs. consent, best practices and minimum working conditions, and psychological safety.
